OVERVIEW

Introduction

This report analyses data collected from refugees and asylum-seekers in Gaziantep and Kilis, Turkey between April 24 and May 6, 2017. It is the first in a series of data collection rounds by Ground Truth Solutions in Turkey, under the Mixed Migration Platform (MMP). Additional data collection will include both quantitative and qualitative research, looking at refugee, asylum-seeker, and migrant perceptions of humanitarian assistance in different regions of Turkey.

Interviews for this survey were conducted face-to-face with 413 refugees and asylum-seekers living across seven districts in Gaziantep and Kilis. Respondents were randomly selected, with interviewees first being soughtout in public spaces such as restaurants, parks, religious institutions, community centres, clinics, and markets – areas where enumerators expected to encounter a high number of respondents. Enumerators also used snowball sampling to meet their targets, e.g. asking parents and teachers at schools in different communities to put them in touch with potential interviewees. The aim was to have an appropriate gender balance and to include all main groups of refugees, asylum-seekers, and migrants, i.e. Syrians, Iraqis, Iranians, Afghans, and Somalis.

Respondents were asked to score each closed question on a scale of 1 to 5. More background and information on the methodology can be found at the end of this report.
